Chivalry Is Not Dead

We would like to salute the Mayor of Milwaukee Tom Barrett for his bravery.

On 8.15.09 Mayor Barrett, while leaving the state fair without his security detail because he was not on duty as Mayor, came to the defense of a Grandmother screaming for help while defending her one-year-old grandchild from a man wielding a pipe in a domestic dispute. Mayor Barrett was hit several times in the head and torso, and broke his hand as he stood his ground.

Thankfully the the Grandmother and the child were unharmed and Mayor Barrett is expected to make a full recovery from his injuries and the assailant has been arrested.

Read the whole story here from the Chicago Tribune.

    GDS Theme Passage

    "For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus
    Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for
    Jesus' sake. For God, who said, 'Let light shine
    out of darkness,' has shone in our hearts to give
    the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in
    the face of Jesus Christ. But we have this treasure
    in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power
    belongs to God and not to us."
    - 2 Corinthians 4:5-7
